Page 20 Thursday, April 4,1996 High School Students Told How to Succeed in Business "How to Succeed In Business" was the subject when Westfield Public Schools' Human Resources Director David M. Tuller visited Mrs. Karen Miller's classes at Westfield High School. Mr. Tuller stressed the importance of creating a good impression right from the start. A clear, concise telephone call or letter in response to an advertisement, a clean and neat application with no mistakes was recommended by Mr. Tuller. He also suggested copying the original and using it as a rough draft and dressing for the interview neatly and keeping with the type of business. Mr. Tuller told the students that 75 per cent of those workers fired from a job lose it because of a lack of interpersonal skills, not an inability to do the job itself. He pointed out the importance of knowing how to deal with people in a polite and direct way, such as shaking hands, eye contact, being prompt for an appointment and smiling.

"This open house provides an opportu ne time for those who are beginning to think about an independent school education to explore what we have to offer," said Director of Admission and Pingry alumnus, Sherman English.

Our Evening Open House will allow those who attend to meet some of our students and teachers personally and to learn about Pi ngry in an informative but informal setting." The Pingry School was founded in 1861 in Elizabeth, and currently enrolls about 1,000 students on campuses in Short Hills for grades Kindergarten through six and in Bernards Township for grades seven to 12, near the community of Marti nsville.
